A Double Dose of Noah Baumbach Comes to Netflix Next Month, Plus ‘Before Midnight,’ ‘Donnie Darko,’ and More

20 September 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While October usually signals the arrival of all sorts of spooky, creepy, scary, and otherwise appropriately Halloween-themed films to both theaters and streaming services, this month’s batch of new titles on Netflix offers up a delightfully wide variety of choices that aren’t all tied to the year’s primary celebration of fear. Sure, those titles are there — from more mainstream chillers like “Cult of Chucky” and the new original “The Babysitter,” to more offbeat picks like the cannibal coming-of-age tale “Raw” and the seminal “Donnie Darko” — but this month’s incoming list has more than enough for movie fans who don’t want to shriek at their televisions.

11 August 2017 10:50 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Can you feel the thick tension hanging in the air? Networks are currently announcing decisions about which series will return next Fall and which will . . . not be. While there are a number of shows that are ending in 2017, many of them at least got a final season to finish out their stories. (New Girl and Portlandia aren't on this list, as they have been granted final seasons and will end in 2018.) The following shows have just been dumped from the primetime schedule to make room for new Fall pilots. Fox Scream Queens: Ryan Murphy's horror-comedy is over after two seasons. Making History: The time-travel comedy is history. Son of Zorn: The live-action/cartoon hybrid is done after one season. Apb: The futuristic cop drama starring Justin Kirk is dead in the water. Pitch: After one season, Fox is pulling the plug on this sports drama. »

July 2017 Film Preview

29 June 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Girls Trip

As “Wonder Woman” becomes the highest-grossing live action film directed by a woman, July promises to bring even more interesting, powerful women to the big screen — whether they are in front of camera or behind it. July starts with a fascinating documentary from director Lara Stolman. “Swim Team” follows swim athletes on the autism spectrum and explores how the team gives its young men a chance to feel included and in control, sometimes for the first time ever.

The second weekend in July brings a pair of noteworthy women-centric films. Netflix’s “To the Bone” is inspired by writer-director Marti Noxon’s own struggles with anorexia, and charts her unconventional road to recovery. And Shakespeare gets an update from writer Alice Birch in “Lady Macbeth,” whose titular character discovers her own power after engaging in a dangerous affair.

Things get a bit lighter on July 21, with a pair of comedies about the complex ties between women. In Gillian Robespierre’s “Landline” two sisters unexpectedly bond after discovering their father’s affair. “Girls Trip” sees four lifelong friends reconnecting at a rowdy, unforgettable weekend in New Orleans.

The month closes with a female-led action flick, and an urgent documentary sequel. Charlize Theron stars in “Atomic Blonde,” the story of an extremely talented MI6 agent who is sent to deliver a sensitive dossier to the destabilized city of Berlin. “An Inconvenient Sequel,” a follow-up to 2006’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” is a potent reminder of the imminent danger of climate change, greed, and the apathy of those in power. Co-director Bonni Cohen follows Al Gore as he makes climate change’s dangers known to the entire world — and the film is being updated to include the United States’ decision to retreat from the Paris Climate treaty.

Here are all of the women-centric, women-directed, and women-written films debuting in July. All descriptions are from press materials unless otherwise noted.

19 June 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Mireille Enos in “The Catch”: Kelsey McNeal/ABC

Vertical Entertainment has snagged the U.S. rights to the Mireille Enos thriller “Never Here,” Deadline reports. The film, which made its world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 18, will receive a theatrical release later this year and will air on Starz in 2018.

Written and directed by Camille Thoman (“The Longest Game”), “Never Here” follows Miranda (Enos), an installation artist who is engaging in an affair. When her lover sees a violent crime from Miranda’s apartment, she decides to protect him and report it to the police herself. “Miranda poses as the primary witness, making statements to the police about a crime she did not see, and she begins to create a new piece of work based on these circumstances,” Deadline writes. “It sends Miranda into a maze of doubt and fear, blurring the lines between artist and subject.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Starz and the ‘Never Here’ team to bring this incredibly visceral film to audiences,” Vertical co-president Rich Goldberg commented. “Camille’s distinct vision threads an especially unique story that calls for active participation from every viewer.”

Never Here” also stars Nina Arianda (“Florence Foster Jenkins”), Ana Nogueira (“Vampire Diaries”), Sam Shepard (“Bloodlines”), Goran Visnjic (“Timeless”), Vincent Piazza (“The Intervention”), and Desmin Borges (“You’re the Worst”).

Wonderbar Productions and Before the Door Pictures are producing “Never Here.” Thoman is serving as producer alongside Elizabeth Yng-Wong, Bronwyn Cornelius, Julian Cautherley, Radium Cheung, and Corey Moosa.

Enos starred as Sarah Linden in Veena Sud’s mystery series “The Killing” from 2011 to 2014. The “If I Stay” actress earned a Golden Globe nod for the role. Enos portrayed Alice Vaughan in the Shondaland romantic thriller “The Catch” for two seasons. The ABC show was cancelled earlier this year.

Early Pilot Buzz: What’s Heating Up for the 2017-2018 TV Season?

28 April 2017 1:45 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With Upfronts still more than two weeks away, it’s still early in the decision-making process, but as the current broadcast season winds down, television executives are beginning to form opinions on the pilots in contention for their network’s 2017-2018 slate.

As always, a handful of projects are rising as early frontrunners, while others have not impressed with their first cuts and are in need of re-shoots and re-tooling. No stark trends have emerged across the broadcast networks, though there are a number of military-themed dramas, many female-led comedies and lighter one-hours in the works. In contrast to the past few pilot seasons, reboots are not as hot this year, though there are a few, such as the CW’s “Dynasty,” “S.W.A.T.” at CBS and “What About Barb” at NBC.

Of course, television executives and writers are all on edge with a possible WGA strike on the horizon, but »

Hooked on a Feeling: Remembering Guardians of the Galaxy

28 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the sequel on release now [read our review here], Sean Wilson casts his mind back to summer 2014 when the original Marvel adventure became the true underdog champ of blockbuster movies…

A kindly tree-like creature named Groot illuminates a series of spores, imbuing his superhero misfit buddies with a profound sense of wonderment. Tyler Bates’ score soars off the back of a beautifully managed synthetic/choral arrangement. The integration of CGI with physical actors is exquisitely handled. And it’s official: Guardians of the Galaxy has, against all the odds, become one of my favourite Marvel movies of all time.

Like many great movies, it’s tempting to begin midway through the action. But let’s back up a bit.

It’s July 2014. I’m more than midway through what has been an extremely strong year for cinema encompassing, among others 12 Years a Slave, Under the Skin, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Raid 2, »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie review: 2 same 2 spurious

27 April 2017 11:44 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

MaryAnn’s quick take… Thinks it’s edgy and transgressive, the punk little brother of all those other stodgy comic-book movies, but it isn’t. It’s just slightly more candy-colored. I’m “biast” (pro): big Sf geek

I’m “biast” (con): wasn’t crazy about the first movie

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

You were insufferable to start with,” groans Gamora, the badass green chick who should be the hero of the Guardians of the Galaxy series, but who must give way to Star-Lord, aka doofy Earther Peter Quill, because he’s the boy and the boy always gets to be the leader, even in space. She says this, rolling her eyes — and oh, I so sympathize with her, and no, that does not make this movie particularly “female friendly” — after a revelation about Peter’s parentage that is at the center of the tedious, »

Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 12 Review: These Boots Were Made for Stalking

25 April 2017 7:36 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Is anyone else getting serious Alison vibes from Addison?

Please don't tell me I was the only one.

On Pretty Little Liars Season 7 Episode 12, Emily was tormented by a school girl who seemed to think she could lie that Emily was inappropriate with her. 

It was a horrible turn of events, and I genuinely felt bad for Emily. She knew she was on thin ice because of A helping her out with the whole college thing. 

That's a secret that will likely come out, but with A still calling the shots, there's no telling when it will. Paige has always been sketchy, but she seemed to be doing Emily a favor tonight. 

As much as she hates Alison with a passion, it's doubtful she would want any harm to come to Emily. I do think Paige should have taken Addison's claims to the principle before even consulting Emily. 

It's understandable »

‘Twin Peaks’ and Beyond: The Best Shows Inspired by David Lynch’s TV Phenomenon

19 April 2017 4:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been more than 25 years since “Twin Peaks” first rocked ABC’s airwaves with the question of “Who killed Laura Palmer?” and made it clear that David Lynch was a master of television as well as film. While the auteur is returning with a revival series that picks up a quarter-century after the events of the original, we don’t have to only watch Showtime to get that “Twin Peaks” vibe.

Although the series only ran two seasons, the show has influenced countless of TV shows. The most obvious homages feature a central murder mystery that unearths the sordid underbelly of a small town. Wonderfully bizarre characters and dreamy, borderline nightmarish elements may also be hallmarks of a Lynchian homage.

Did anyone else scream “Jumanji!” during Tuesday’s Pretty Little Liars premiere? … Oh, just me then?

After nine long months — you know, the same amount of time it takes to fully cook a child in the womb, or so I’ve read — Freeform’s crown jewel returned to kick off its final run. And the hour began with a special gift for the Liars: an inconceivably detailed board game, complete with a miniature replica of Rosewood and a piece representing each girl.
